    Hey Guys

    I know books have been discuses before, but I just need some input.
    I was ref books that I can carry with me to the LFS probably in A5.
    For fish I have figured out that A Pocket Guide to Marine Fishes is the one to go for by Scott Michael.

    Is there anything similar for corals. I hear that Corals a quick Ref Guid is good but it is hard cover.

    I am not looking for huge detail marine books, I already have:
    The Reef Aquerium Vol 1 & 2
    A Guid to Saltwater Aquarium
    Dr. Burges's Atlas of Marine Fish
    Reef Secrets

    Ta,

    Ross

    I dont know of a small book that you can carry with, but this is the book I can recommend as a reference guide to corals:

    Aquarium Corals: Selection,Husbandry,and Natural History
    By Eric Borneman

    Ok let me tell you how doff I am, I sent the Amazon links to my wife and she comes back, but you have this book. It is on the shelf and full off yellow post-it notes. So that was embarrassing.

    Saw this Aquarium Corals: Selection,Husbandry,and Natural History in my search. Will take a better look at it. Thanks Dolphin

    I have the Eric Borneman book. Its awesome. Bit big and a longish read if you just want to have a quick look at the requirements in a shop though.

    ross, also look on Loot.co.za, many times they are cheaper and the cutoff value for free shipping is way lower than kalahari these days.
